Ginny Weasley had a prolific wizarding career after the main events of the Harry Potter series. Actress Bonnie Wright played the pure-blood witch in all eight installments of the series based on the books by J.K. Rowling.

Ginevra Weasley, normally referred to as "Ginny," was the youngest child of Arthur and Molly. Out of the seven siblings, Ginny was notably the only girl. Ginny was first seen in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone accompanying her mother to King's Cross Station to drop off her older brothers for a new year at Hogwarts. The following year, Ginny would join Fred, George, and Ron as a Hogwarts student. The young Gryffindor was a shy girl who had harbored a crush for Harry since her first year at the magical institution.

As time went on, Ginny became a more confident witch. She was an accomplished Quidditch player, serving as a Chaser and Seeker for the Gryffindor team. Her role continued to grow in the series as Ginny became an integral part of Harry Potter's fight against Lord Voldemort and his followers. She joined Dumbledore's Army and fought in multiple battles including the Battle of Hogwarts. Ginny bravely participated alongside her family to protect her school. Following her duel with Bellatrix Lestrange, Ginny's mother, Molly, jumped to her aid and killed the Death Eater. Unfortunately, the Weasley family lost Fred in the fight as he was killed from an explosion during the battle. Following the end of the Second Wizarding War, Ginny went on to have a great life.

The epilogue featured at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows revealed that Harry and Ginny got married and had three children, James, Albus, and Lily. In 2017, the couple brought their children to King's Cross Station to see off James and Albus as they embarked on a new year at Hogwarts (Albus' first). The epilogue also proved that Ginny, Harry, Hermione, and Ron continued their lifelong bond.

In the years that followed the Harry Potter series, Rowling provided other clues about Ginny's later life. After Hogwarts, Ginny became a professional Quidditch player for the Holyhead Harpies. She played on the team for a few years before retiring so that she and Harry could start a family. Ginny eventually became the Daily Prophet's official Quidditch correspondent. She covered the 2014 Quidditch World Cup for the wizarding newspaper, writing articles under the name Ginny Potter. A few years later, Ginny was named the sports editor for the Daily Prophet. Around the same time, she helped Harry and Draco Malfoy go back in time to rescue Albus and Draco's son, Scorpius, after they were threatened by the Dark witch, Delphini, as seen in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
